Bicycles and Accidents
Bicycle accidents can result in a broad range of injuries. Helmets may prevent or reduce some injuries, but bicyclists are still at some risk for head injuries. Wrist or arms injuries happen when cyclist falls and tries to break their fall. Scrapes, cuts bruises can be extensive. These injuries can be the same as those that occur in car accidents and have the same medical and financial repercussions.
Daniel A. Gabelevich has a record of achieving substantial jury verdicts and settlements on behalf of victims of bicycling accidents. Many cases involve motor vehicles also, such as the following case where a car turned into the bicyclists’ paths, which is by far the most common type of accident involving bicycles.
Bicycles, Paths, and A Car
Two boys taking part in a family bicycling trip were injured when a car crashed onto a bike path in southern New Jersey.
Lakewood police tell the Asbury Park Press that the boys were riding with their mother and two other siblings when the accident occurred around 11 a.m. Sunday. Both were treated at hospitals for minor injuries and later released.
Authorities say the driver, a 32-year-old Lakewood man, told police he was test driving a vehicle when the brakes failed. He then attempted to jump from the vehicle, which ended up entering the bike path.
The motorist was cited for driving on a suspended license, and the car’s owner was cited for allowing an unlicensed person to operate their vehicle.
No other injuries were reported in the accident.
